AIR DATE: THURSDAY 5/11

Us Rating: *** 1/2

In a pivotal episode, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is faced with a monster of a moral dilemma as she and her smarmy rival, Cary (Matt Czuchry), finally find out who gets promoted -- and who gets the boot. The case of the week is involving as always, but Wife shines because of its strong, highly principled and smartly written title character. Watching her even consider aligning with a slick politico (Alan Cumming) to get ahead makes for gripping viewing. (CBS, 10 P.M.)
